of july 3, they were going to seize as many friendships as they possibly could by agreement, hopefully, but if not, by force. and they figured in portsmouth and plymouth, england, this would be fairly easy because these ports are surrounded by british ships and british coastal batteries and that kind of thing. and in alexandria, egypt, kind of the same thing because there was a british port with british ports and big guns and british fleet around. there was a different situation because there was only a french flotilla, a french naval base, and the admiralty which is the british naval command radioed, of course in code, to the fleet in gibraltar, and they said this is what you have to do. you have to sail through the night of july 2 and 3rd, and show up at dawn. and give our terms to the french fleet. and the terms were, or were going to be, you were our loyal allies in the fight against the germans, up until just days ago. sail out of the port and join us in the fight against the germans. if you can't do that, give us your ships. we will sell them with the british sailors and give the
and that the speaker was offering him that you had to raise rates. obama himself, as you know, said last july, july, 2011, you can get $1.2 trillion by eliminating loopholes, which is exactly what republicans offered him. so why did he insist on the rates? he said that is what he will insist upon, and that was the ultimatum. he did that because he knew it would create a crisis among the republicans and it did. so right up until now obama has what he wanted, which was a partisan, political success. he's been less worried about the fiscal issue for two reasons. number one, he does not care about debt. he hasn't in the four years. and number two, he thinks he's a political winner if we go over the cliff. he thinks he's holding all the cards. >> all right. charles, let me agree with one point. you use the term, and i will concede that's the perfect term, ruthless skill. but, as bob woodward pointed out when he wrote this book about the grand bargain negotiations, it's not going to be looked at through this historical prism as the boehner era, this is the obama e.r.a. if the economists are right and thi
and is reported favorably by the senate judiciary committee last july. i hope senators will support it. i'm leave pleased that senatorse joined me as cosponsors of this amendment. i call on all senators who talk about accountability and oversight to join with us to adopt this better approach to ensuring our security and our privacy. in june, after the senate intelligence committee originated the senate bill to reauthorize and extend fisa, senator grassley and i asked for a sequential referral, one that would allow the judiciary committee to consider and improve this important legislation, which under the rules we could. the bill that was approved by the intelligence committee provided for a general and really unfettered extension of the expired provisions until june 2017. i hope that we could approve that and we did. i worked with the distinguished chair of the senate intelligence committee to craft a compromise to assure the extension until 2015 you go also add some -- but also add some accountability in the overite oversight provision. i appreciated the senator from california's help and strong
. [video clip] >> we took that vote back on july 25. it did not originate in the house. it has no chance of becoming law. that is what i said back on july 25. we allow that vote and i said we knew it did not pass constitutional muster and that democrats would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires if they were serious and as i called on them to do last week. the so-called senate bill is no more than a glorified sense of the senate revolution. let's put that talking point aside. host: mitch mcconnell -- or is a story from politico.com, "why they will not go over the cliff." "they see an advantage in negotiating with republicans that will feel free not to raise taxes once the rates have gone out. the president is pulling in the mid 50's. there is still time for the dynamic to shift. speed banner will stress the house has passed legislation to avert the entire fiscal cliff. there is an ad we want to point out in "the new york times" and "the washington post." together" rds "come as a way to send a message to congress. "the struggle of today is fo
the fiscal cliff. the dow lost 158 points, it is currently a five day losing streak in its longest since july. the nasdaq reported 25 points. >> banks rack up a record to $10.7 billion in fines in 2012. that includes what the banks paid to u.s. and state of 40's-but it does not include the billions more paid to european regulators. most of the fines were related to improper mortgage practices. >> making interstate phone calls could soon get cheaper. for prison inmates. prison call systems are different than normal pay phones. a typical 50 minute conversation current cost an average of $16. that is largely due to fees that call providers are allowed to charge prisoners in some states. here in new york, where fees are banned, rates can go as low as 5¢ a minute. but in places like colorado, inmates did charge almost 90¢ a minute. the sec is planning to open the public comment about reducing rates nationwide. >> the u.s. population is said to hit 350 million by the new year's day. it has an increase of less than 1 percent since april 2010, which was the last time the population snapshot was tak
that vote back on july 25th, the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside from here on out. last night i told the president we'd be happy to look at whatever he proposes but the truth is we're coming up against a hard deadline here and, as i said, this is a conversation we should have had months ago. and republicans aren't about to write a blank check or anything senate democrats put forward just because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. that wouldn't be fair to the american peop
's at its highest level since july. and investors are nervous because we still don't know what the actual tax ramifications are going to be going into 2013. there is a real potential. you could see people trying to get out of this market on monday in order to avoid perceived higher income taxes. higher taxes, capital gain taxes because we don't have any clear picture yet on what reid and mcconnell might be crafting. >> harris: wow. people getting out of market suddenly. which companies stand to lose if that happens? >> this is a really interesting list of companies that was actually compiled by goldman sachs. we were reporting this today. these are companies that get 50% of their sales, or more, from the u.s. government. deals of the government. lockheed martin, granted construction. grumed. saint jude medical. motorola, waste manage: these are companies that not only have big contracts with the government but employ a lot of people who should these contracts not be renewed to the extent they are right now. those employees could be facing an uncertain future. >> harris: wow, at a time wh
government. this past july u.s. attorney melinda hague filed forfeiture action against them. that means that the buildings could be seized dispensary shut down. it's all part of ongoing federal crackdown on pot in california. >> one of the reasons we are making these announcements today to try to put to rest the notion that large marijuana businesses can shelter themselves under state law and operate without fear of federal enforcement. >> henry, the lead attorney for harbor side, says in the past year hundreds of california dispensaries have been shut down. >> up until now every time the federal government has attempted to close down a dispensary through forfeiture action they have closed their doors and moved on. i suspect that that's what they thought was going to happen with harbor side but they got a big surprise. >> shortly after they received the notice, harbor side announced they would contest the case. and in october they received an unlikely ally, the city of oakland. city own barbara parker filed suited against the federal government. parker says oakland has already heavily
well. >> there you go. >> let's hope on the 18th of july, in the year 2013, you and i are sitting here celebrating nelson mandela's 95th birthday. >> can you imagine? i think we will. >> let's hope. >> fingers crossed. thank you, nadia. really appreciate that. >>> it is still -- it is still -- it will still be in the air, but a little closer to the ground. the shuttle "atlantis" soon to go on display in florida. we'll show you the plans next. productivity up, costs down, time to market reduced... those are good things. upstairs, they will see fantasy. not fantasy... logistics. ups came in, analyzed our supply chain, inventory systems... ups? ups. not fantasy? who would have thought? i did. we did, bob. we did. got it. because for every two pounds you lose through diet and exercise, alli can help you lose one more by blocking some of the fat you eat. let's fight fat with alli. ♪ >>> okay. let's get you back now to the white house. and you see that is washington, obviously. and you see the new york stock exchange. we're keeping an eye on the stock exchange. it is down now. it is down n
're celebrating? i don't think it's easter or july 4 and we haven't quite gotten to new year's day yet. i believe the holiday we're celebrating is christmas. and we should call it a christmas tree. and they kind of set it o rest that they don't really use that word here, that they're more inclusive than calling a christmas tree a christmas tree. >> rick: you bring up a good point. when you and i were kids, it was very common, everybody said merry christmas to everyone at that time. and i grew up in a predominantly christian town. when i moved away into a larger city and eventually had some jewish friends in a town that didn't have a big jewish population, i suddenly became away there was hanukkah. we said things happy holidays to have an idea of inclusivity. but this has gone so far the other way. how do you think that transition happened? >> well, i think we've become so politically correct, frankly speaking, that really our brains have fallen out. it is okay to say merry christmas. it is okay to say happy hanukkah. the supreme court has already weighed in on these issues and two landmark cases,
begin with a traffic stop back in july. >> i don't have marijuana. >> i don't smoke marijuana. >> gregg: a female officer was then called to the scene to perform a cavity search on both women. the officers say it was necessary because they saw the suspect throw what may have been marijuana cigarettes out of the car. women say they were molested, their rights were violated. was the search unconstitutional or did police really have probable cause here. joey jackson, vicky ziegler, former prosecutors. very sensitive subject. a lot depends on the videotape. i not sure you can discern critical issues? >> there is a lot we don't know certainly. when i looked at the video i saw some invasive procedures. it appeared that this female officer had her fingers in the backside of this woman. she went underneath her pants, underneath, we don't know if it was under her underwear, it appeared it was more than a frisk. more than a pat down allowed by the law. terry versus ohio you are allowed to pat down if you believe there is contraband but this was egregious. it was done on a public highway in front
in july of this year. senator mcconnell later became one of aung san suu kyi's chief advocates in the senate and we continued to work on behalf of the people in burma. in 2003, following an assassination attempt, senator mcconnell and i worked to pass an important and that remains in -- that remainsban in place today, an effort to bring about further reform. and i must say, burma is extremely lucky to have a champion mike aung san suu kyi. -- like on songs hoochy like aung san suu kyi -- like aung san suu kyi. in the face of violence, harassment, intimidation, she has never wavered in her pursuit of human rights. she celebrates the release of political prisoners, including the approximately 90 released this week, but she remains true to those still behind bars, estimated to be around twothis woman sacrifice years of her life to bring about these changes. she is truly an inspiration to the world. you are so well deserving of this gold medal. i can only begin to express my happiness that we are able to present this to you today in this very special place, a very special woman. th
victims. >> seven down! >> july 20th, just past midnight, terror inside theater nine. >> aurora, colorado, nine miles east of denver, where there has been a mass shooting at a movie theater. >> prosecutores say james holmes donned protective gear, threw tear gas and began firing. in the end, 12 people killed, 58 others wounded. holmes faces 152 charges. many victims continue to recover, while others will never recover the loss they suffered that night. and number one -- >> unimaginable horror grips the nation in one of the deadliest school shootings in u.s. history. >> tragedy at sandy hook elementary. >> this is unspeakable what happened in this town. >> innocent children shot dead in their classrooms. the victims, 16 6-year-olds, 4 7-year-olds with 6 adults. >> emilie's laughter was infectious and all those who had a pleasure to meet her would agree this world is a better place because she's been in it. >> in newtown, connecticut, an outpouring of kindness and compassion, while a nation faced hard questions about mental health and guns. as the president issued an emotional call for acti
. in court document, the 21-year-old told a judge her parents, julie and david, frequently drove from their home in kansas to her campus in ohio unannounced to check up on her. they told her and college officials she had mental problems and they could try to have her evaluated. in the filings, she said her parents traveled to cincinnati, showed up at my university and made threats to my musical theatre department. and added, "they also improperly monitored my phone and computer with tracking software." it is an unusual case, experts say, that goes beyond what's known as the helicopter and overprotective parent. >> the helicopter parent is overly involved maybe, intrusive. but they understand their child is a separate human being. the toxic parent doesn't understand that. they're overly suffocating. they view their child as an object. >> reporter: "the cincinnati ending requirer" reported the prestigious music program offered aubrey a scholarship for her final year. when her parents stopped paying tuition and wanted their daughter to pay them back for her first three years at the unive
a different flag hanging over our house on the fourth of july. >> there's a lot of people that say what we need to do, we can run a 2% deficit. we need to get back to "x" amount of revenue, and "y" amount of government spending. and most people say somewhere between like 18 revenue, 20 spending, maybe 19 revenue, 21 pending. given what the democrats and the white house are offering on the spending cuts, do you feel that maybe they're thinking they want to keep it at 23, 22, 24? we're not seeing anything that gets us anywhere near 20 or 21 in terms of the offers we're seeing from them. are we? >> no. no. i mean, this would be like, you know, in 1969, we landed the first man on the moon. but it would have never happened if -- the only thing they worried about was exactly how the, you know, the lunar module was going to land, but not how they were going to leave the atmosphere of the earth. you can't worry about the little details on these tax issues. as much as the winners of the election want to punish the rich, because i can't think of any other reason that we dwell so much on that side of
the mood. you could use this in july. this bowl to me is so beautiful. this is from zee gallery. this is under $100. this would look great anywhere in your house. when you combine it with this beautiful runner, and i took these westhome vases and dressed them up with tulips. these are from a supermarket. if you take a whole bunch, again, more is more. put them in there. it's the unexpected. it makes it look just fun and festive. >> this looks very spring here too. >> it does. or it could be, you know, again for new year's, any time of the year. >> very fresh. >> it's combining the unexpected to make it festive and fun. >> okay. last but not least, this is table that keeps giving. >> this keeps on giving. i think it's fun to have the center piece also be gifts for guests. so the first thing i thought it for the host memento, this is a monogrammed tray. it says happy 2013. >> this can be there year round. >> exactly. fun to have a bunch of them. this can be in your center. then i love the idea of these mint julip cups. i monogram them for each guest. they don't have to be. filling
for liberation who elected a pro-american government in july, who sought greater u.s. assistance to treat their wounded, train their national security forces come to secure their borders, build their democratic institutions, and expand the rule of law. libyans did not want al qaeda militias running amok in large parts of the country. that is the reality we now face. this is the broader failure of the administration's so-called life footprint approach toward libya. regardless of whom the president nominates to serve in his cabinet, we will continue to ask these questions and demand answers and accountability. i would like to concur with senator mccain. i thought the report was very detailed and the recommendations good and solid in terms of how to better understand the intelligence and run it, how to improve security on the ground, and there is much we can learn from this report. here is what we do know -- we know nothing about president obama before, during, and after the attack. they're making two movies about his use of in the bin laden rate, and he deserves that. it was well executed a
